GRANDPAcking 2016



OCTOBER 2016: Click here to read our Mexico Retirement Reviews. OVERVIEW: I made my way from Mahahual to Bacalar by public transport (Colectivo).

But a reasonably clean and pleasant one. I couldn’t afford a hotel in Tulum and I wanted spare cash to visit some ruins and to dive some cenotes. It was time to move south to Mahahual. So far, in Mexico, I have stayed on the ‘well […]
